I'm gonna say no. I think tapes super-glued the relationship between them and us, and has allowed them the ability to generate huge sums of money even as they approach old age. So yes, I think listening to the tapes then, and even more now, enables us to hear the music with a greater appreciation than even before when we were going to shows. Does anyone think that without this loyalty, Further would be touring now?

not questioning the loyalty - just the part of how much of it was a result of taping. those shitty sounding 5th gen tapes we were mailing around the country 30 yrs ago.

I don't think it's those shitty tapes. It's the good to great ones we now have access to and have since the 80's.

My first exposure to tapes was meeting Dick Latvala in 1977 on the Big Island while I was doing a bike cruise. One of the first ones he made me was 8/6/71. It was all downhill after that.
